Welcome to Rome!

Ciao, and welcome to Rome, foodies! Your culinary adventure begins in the vibrant Prati neighborhood, known for its close proximity to the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica and the perfect place to sample some of Rome's best foods. After meeting your knowledgeable guide and fellow group members at a local Café, you'll head inside and dive right into the good stuff.

First things first, a delightful aperitivo. This classic Italian tradition is cherished amongst friends, families, and colleagues and is all about waking up your appetite and getting it ready for what's to come. You'll be treated to free-flowing wine while indulging in a selection of mouthwatering treats, including truffles, aged balsamic vinegar drizzled over Parmigiano Reggiano, Genovese pesto, and the freshest buffalo mozzarella. Enjoy, but don't fill up, as there's plenty more food to come!

Pizza at the Pizzarium

No trip to Rome is complete without sampling some of the world's best pizza, so next on the itinerary is a stop by the renowned Pizzarium–hailed as Rome's number one pizzeria. Owned by the acclaimed Gabriele Bonci and often referred to as the 'Michelangelo of pizza,' this place comes highly recommended by Anthony Bourdain and numerous food bloggers.

You'll quickly discover why it's such a beloved place as you're given the difficult task of choosing your toppings. With over 50 daily imaginative variations and fresh, in-season ingredients to pick from, the possibilities are endless. Perhaps you'll opt for the mortadella with crumbled pistachio, sweeten things up with fig and prosciutto, or go for the rich flavors of roasted potatoes with mozzarella. And don't miss out on Gabriele's personal favorite, the Burrata and anchovies pizza.

Cheeses Galore at a local food shop

Italians firmly believe there's no such thing as too much cheese, so next on the agenda is a trip to one of Rome's ultimate gourmet food shops, and a cheese lover's paradise. With an impressive selection of over 400 types of cheeses and 150 types of cured meats, you'll delight in discovering the art of how to pair the flavors together and learn why there are subtle and bold differences between the many types.

Your knowledge foodie guide will also teach you about the concept of "what grows together, goes together," and with fine wine to match, you'll find time seems to vanish .

Homemade Pasta at a Family Owned Restaurant

We may have already mentioned that you can't come to Rome and not sample pizza, but what about pasta? That's a must, too. And hopefully, you've saved room, as next up is a stop by a place that has been passed down through generations. The charming family-owned restaurant that will host you dates back to the 1940s and is all about cooking authentic Roman food using fresh ingredients. Plus, with perfectly-paired D.O.C.G wine flowing steadily, you may never want to leave!

This was a great food experience and we learned a lot about local Italian food and history. The selection of food and venues was close and varied as well as fun. Luca was the perfect tour guide with being a local and fun to be with. We also met great people on the tour and look forward to keeping in touch with them. I would highly recommend this tour.
